Enriching Core Subject Learning as an Apple Distinguished School
As an Apple Distinguished School, we recognise the vital importance of culture, environment and pedagogy. Each of these foundational tenets play a multi-faceted role in supporting children to develop higher order thinking skills, fluency and, ultimately, mastery. Effective learning takes place when each of these threads are harmoniously interweaving and constantly enriching each other. Through instant visible feedback, effective collaboration and continuous communication, teachers and senior leaders reflect and implement approaches that make the best of our digital ecosystem. They craft lessons purposefully, utilising apps and digital content that deepens and extends opportunities for engaging learning.

We have carefully selected four supporting apps (Reading Eggs, EdShed, Times Table Rock Stars and Numbots) to increase the fluency of key skills applied during daily core subject learning. Regular use of these apps has given children greater autonomy, enabling them to focus on the areas where they want to improve. Empowering children in this way ensures that every pupil is actively engaged in their unique journey of progress; developing the key learning skills of self-reflection, determination and academic rigour that genuinely transforms them into lifelong learners. All iPads are pre-loaded with these apps which directly compliment knowledge, content and skills covered during EYFS, KS1 and KS2 lessons.
